Nut Butters & Avoiding Harmful Additives
Nut butters provide healthy omega fats, vitamin E, dietary fiber, potassium, selenium and so on... BUT the other ingredients? And the way the nut butter was processed? Well, that's another story. A story that doesn't have a happy ending. Inflammation causing agents like gmo's, low quality oils, artificial binders and other added ingredients make this typically highly promoted, "healthy snack", not so snacky. In fact, you're doing much more harm to your body then good.
In this episode, Brandon examines the kinds of nut butters you should be looking for to avoid inflammation. He also analyzes the benefits those options provide and how the healthy dietary fiber gives your gut a much needed boost for healthier digestion and nutrient absorption.
Basically, he shows you what to avoid, how it hurts you, what to go for and the benefits this simple change posses. That way, you can still enjoy this classically favorite snack AND finally add the full benefits of these nutrient dense foods. Best of all? You don't give up any taste or what you love.
After you've made the change, check out some of the "My Simple Changes" recipes to find out where you can incorporate this now healthy ingredient!
